President Gerald Ford was a Ski Bum at this Michigan Resort

Congressman Gerald Ford was an avid downhill skier before he became infamous for terrorizing spectators on the golf course while away from the Oval Office. While Gerald Ford doesn't rank in the top echelon of best presidents of the United States, he will always be the answer to the trivia question: "Which president was the only one never elected to the office of president or vice president?" Nixon named the Congressman vice president when Spiro Agnew resigned in 1973, and Ford would take the oath of office as the 38th President when Nixon himself stepped down in disgrace in 1974. We love him here in his adopted home state of Michigan. Before public opinion polls, Gerald Ford loved ski poles, boots, bindings, and fresh powder.
